Summer Housing

Sign Up

Comstock, Wilder, and Park House will be used for Summer 2018. Please check out the Summer Housing Prezi for more information on completing the forms! *Gardiner House is not longer being used for summer housing. We are using Wilder again for 2018.*


For summer housing, you will pick your house and room assignment yourself for the weeks you sign up.


Graduating seniors and non-Smith students are not eligible for college housing. We are providing all single occupancy rooms. This means that rooms typically used as doubles throughout the academic year will have only one occupant in summer. This means no students will have a roommate for summer housing.

Payment & Fees

Click on this custom calculator to estimate your total payment. For 2018, the fee will be $164 a week. Note that this year Student Financial Services is providing a payment plan for students: http://www.smith.edu/sfs/financing_plan.php

Your Responsibility

You are responsible for paying the full amount of your contracted time regardless of whether you stay the entire time. You may not change any weeks already contracted for, but you can add upcoming weeks through Wednesday of the preceding week. If you are unsure about your length of stay, only sign up for the minimal amount of weeks and add later.

Rooms will be inspected and damages or cleaning charges will be assessed to you. You will be billed for replacing an unreturned room key. Long-term "guests" are considered an abuse and could result in cancellation of your contract.

Move in/Move out/Key Pickup

Students must move out for any week(s) they have not signed up. Move out is noon on Sunday. This means that all of your belongings must be out of the room and the room closed and locked by this time. Move in to new rooms starts at 2 pm. You may pick up keys from 2-4 pm Sunday at the Clark Hall key kiosk.

Meal Plans


You must be on a meal plan. There is no longer a non-meal plan option. If you have any dietary concerns, please contact Dining Services at 413-585-2300 or dining@smith.edu.

Dining rooms will be open for all meals May 14-May 28. There will be no dining locations open on Monday, May 29. Starting May 30 until August 18, the summer meal plan includes dinners Monday–Friday at Cutter/Ziskind* (except where changes are noted below), plus $47.50 on your OneCard to purchase breakfast and lunch in the Campus Center Cafe. There are no weekend meals. Please contact Smith Dining at 413-585-2300 if you have any questions.

Changes to the usual summer dining schedule:

Extended Housing

We are allowing students approved for extended housing to stay in their academic year rooms until Commencement. Students not approved for extended housing must sign up for summer housing for those 2 weeks.

Special Note: Summer Programs Housing

Housing for Summer Precollege Programs during your term of employment is handled through the Office of Summer Programs. Contact Program Coordinator Katie Ediginton, at kedington@smith.edu, with any questions.
